After being introduced during a 2008 recording session in Nashville, Sam and Tre, along with DJ Kidsmeal, decided to collaborate and see what happened. Eventually, their unique brand of Electro Glitch Hip Hop was born. With roots in Hip Hop and Rock, their unique group represents all of their respective upbringings in London, Atlanta and Trenton, Tennessee, while still keeping an international sensibility.
Sam has produced artists such as Josh Doyle, Circle of Sound, Intramural, and Damien Horne, just to name a few. Sam and Tre have recently performed major music events such as Nashville's 8 Off 8th/BMI promotional series at Mercy Lounge, RedGorilla Music Fest, and SXSW (South By Southwest) festival.
This EP effort is their first collaborative recording. While showcasing their own unique sound, they hope to channel influences such as Producer/ Composer Alan Shacklock (Sam's father), Jimi Hendrix, Bach, Kanye West, Tupac Shakur and Michael Jackson.
The Nashville Scene's Best Of 2010
BEST RAP SINGLE: SAM & TRE - “WE DO”
❝ It took all of, say, 15 seconds of "We Do" to realize that Sam & Tre don't roll like the rest of Music City's rap acts. The first few piano stabs have an '80s-reggae vibe, but once that bass drops — or more accurately, barrels through your internal organs — it's nothing but next school. Tre's got a Cool Hand Luke kind of nonchalance on the microphone — say a prayer for the city's parking meters and hide your hard boiled eggs — that makes the party-chant chorus an instant hands-in-the-air classic. ❞ - SEAN L. MALONEY
